ISDS helps ensure that the integrated and stand-alone control-systems of a vessel perform reliably and safely. In contrast to other class notations, ISDS requirements are requirements on the development process rather than on the finished product. This is in line with the approach taken to ensure system and software quality in other industries.

Course description

This course gives an insight into the requirements that the ISDS standard puts on suppliers, system integrators and owners. It gives both a holistic view of the standard, explaining main principles, and details regarding key aspects, showing examples and alternatives on how to implement the ISDS requirements. This course is based on the December 2012 version of the standard (documented in DNV OS-D203), and is presented by persons from the department which has actually developed the standard and who does the assessment in offshore projects.
